Flyin’ the Flag
For as much effort as I put in trying to capture the perfect light and peak emotion it was this silly little studio shot of a toy holding two flags that garnered the praise of (count ’em) four editors. The story is about promotional items that are passed out to Census workers having been made in China and Honduras. I was assigned to shoot this robot (actually a USB storage device) with some shirts and things. I gave them what they wanted and in some spare time printed, cut out and taped to toothpicks a couple flags.
The editor devoured it.
“Creative thinker”- That’s what they called me!
USA! USA! USA!
